    I want to know how SLI cards compare to single cards. Is there a chart somewhere?

    Would SLI double the fps for the single GPU cards?

    SLI/Crossfire will increase the framerate of games the support it (not all do). However, your framerate will not double. Keep in mind, when you SLO/Crossfire, you you increase the bandwidth and the processing power. You do not increase the RAM (in fact, it goes down). The processor and the bandwidth on the second card are the only things used. The RAM is not. Hence, SLI/Crossfire increases the card but it does not double it.

    {FYI: Crossfire is AMD/ATI's SLI}

    Check out Tom's Hardware (http://www.tomshardware.com/) for reviews.

    Correction: {Nvidia's SLI} :)

    Thanks! I didn't know that.

    I also use "Tomshardware" for info.
